Web Development Resources August 2011

This kind of stuff must be familiar to you if you’re always reading web design blogs like Smashing Magazine and NetTutsPlus. They often times call it roundups, wherein they put together a collection of resources on web design.

Well, what you’re reading now is basically my very own roundup. These are things that I might have shared on my GooglePlus, Twitter or Facebook account. Or just something that I stumbled upon recently.

 

JRumble

Rumble is a jQuery plugin that rumbles, vibrates, shakes, and rotates any element you choose. It’s great to use as a hover effect or a way to direct attention to an element. You can control the X, Y, and rotation range, the speed, and event trigger for the rumble.
